HALL Rutherford offers guests a truly world-class winery experience to include a tasting of HALL’s most regaled wines along with an intimate tour through the property and caves. The winery’s 14,000 square feet of caves were designed and built by hand by Friedrich Gruber of Gutenstein Austria. The caves are finished with handmade Austrian brick recovered from sites in and around Vienna and showcases select works from the Halls’ art collection. Deep inside the caves resides a dazzling reception area for private tastings and entertaining. The room’s spectacular chandelier, designed by Donald Lipski and Jonquil LeMaster, is dressed in hundreds of Swarovski crystals.

This was hands down the best tour and tasting we had in Napa. It was special and they really went all out for this tour/tasting. The wine is pricey, but the experience was worth the $125 per person.

I'm always afraid to write my review of Hall Rutherford because it is by far the most beautiful and the most special and the most perfect place of all in this entire region. Besides the fact that their Cabernets are the best in Napa, this facility is special. From all of the Austrian work with the Austrian Swarovski crystal chandelier... More

Hall Rutherford is up in the hills at a private residence compound with caves and unimpeded views as well. They have revamped their tour and tasting to limit visitors counts to no more than 14 on any given day. Excellent setting, fantastic wines, wonderful tour.

When we got to the gate we were buzzed in by a very pleasant young girl. We got there a little early because we came straight from the airport. When we walked in we were greeted by Rob.. He welcomed us as though we were honored guests in his own home. Being my daughter's birthday and we had just flown... More

The tour starts with a welcome glass of wine in the guest cottage beautifully situated above Napa Valley. It moves on to the wine cellar built with bricks from an Austrian castle. Kathryn Hall, one of the co-owners served as ambassador to Austria for several years. The tasting room is in a vaulted cellar with an incredible chandelier fashioned to... More

We went with family and friends and loved every minute of it! The tour was informative and having a swig of vino during it definitely hit the spot! And then it felt the heavens were upon us, when we saw the crystal chandelier. It was just majestically beautiful! One of my friends whispered to me that this was the best... More

Great tasting room and amazing cave tour. Started with a glass of Sav Blanc or Pinot for art discussion and cave tour. Enjoyed a 2013 Cab barrel tasting. Cave tasting in private setting. Rob was a great host with informative discussions on the Hall Winery. Must see views of Napa from the top of Silverado Trail.

I don't deserve to be considered a wine tasting veteran, but having visited about a dozen Napa/Sonoma vineyards in the last couple of years, most private tours, some walk ins, I was expecting Hall to be solid but not spectacular. I was wrong! A little tricky to find, but what a unique wine country destination. The Hall's are collectors of... More
